  The goal of the High Luminosity Project is the upgrade of the LHC to deliver an integrated luminosity of at least 250 \rm fb-1 per year in each of the two high-luminosity, general-purpose detectors ATLAS and CMS. This article presents the latest layout design and the corresponding optics features, which comprise optimisation of the orbit corrector and crab cavity systems, and new estimates of the performance reach thanks to the new concept of fully remote alignment. In addition, the new optics version incorporates improvements required by beam instrumentation, dump system, and collimation system, as well as low-beta solutions for the LHCb experiment.

  LHC Run 2 has achieved a beta lower than a factor 2 below design. This has significantly challenged optics measurement and correction techniques in the linear and non-linear regimes, leading to the development of new approaches. Furthermore, experimenting with a large variety of optics has allowed facing the difficulties of future optics and gaining understanding of the machine imperfections. A summary of these aspects is given in view of their implications for the HL-LHC Project.

  The CERN Linear Electron Accelerator for Research (CLEAR) has now finished its second year of operation, providing a testbed for new accelerator technologies and a versatile radiation source. Hosting a varied experimental program, this beamline provides a flexible test facility for users both internal and external to CERN, as well as being an excellent accelerator physics training ground. The energy can be varied between 60 and 220 MeV, bunch length between 1 and 4 ps, bunch charge in the range 10 pC to 2 nC, and number of bunches in the range 1 to 200, at a repetition rate of 0.8 to 10 Hz. The status of the facility with an overview of the recent experimental results is presented.

  The commissioning of the Extra Low Energy Antiproton (ELENA) ring has been completed before the start of the second long shutdown (LS2) at CERN. First beams to an experiment in a new experimental zone have as well already been delivered. ELENA will begin distributing 100 keV cooled antiproton beams to all antimatter experiments in 2021. This contribution presents measurements made using a novel scraping algorithm capable of determining the emittance of non-Gaussian beams in the presence of dispersive effects. The emittance is sampled during various sections of the ELENA deceleration cycle, investigating the efficiency of the electron cooler and extracting additional information from the beam. The electron cooler is shown to effectively reduce the transverse phase space after blow-up during deceleration. The beam is characterised before extraction for the purpose of tracking and optimisation of the new electrostatic transfer lines currently being installed. Finally, the application of the scraping algorithm to other machines with a scraper located in a dispersive region is discussed.

This study explores the benefits of extending the monitoring and remote alignment concept, proposed in the HL-LHC baseline, to additional components of the matching sections of the HL-LHC. The objective was to evaluate the benefits in terms of equipment performance and new opportunities for system simplification. In collaboration with the HL-LHC Working Group on Alignment, critical input parameters such as ground motion, manufacturing, assembly, and alignment tolerances, have been quantified. Solutions for the selected, manually aligned compo-nents have been investigated with the particular focus on vacuum design, mechanical design and the new alignment concept compatible with reliability and maintainability requirements. In this context, collimators and masks are key elements to be included in the extended alignment system. Their supporting systems will integrate the concept of on-line monitoring sensors and an actuator based, remote alignment platform. The full remote alignment of components will provide a positive impact to the machine operation reducing the need of human intervention in the tunnel and providing enhanced flexibility to perform the required alignment adjustment as part of an operational tool for the HL-LHC.

The official groundbreaking of the civil engineering (CE) work for the high luminosity upgrade of the LHC started on 15 June 2018 parallel to LHC beam operation. Compactor work and shaft excavation around the two low beta experiments, ATLAS and CMS, were expected to induce vibrations to the accelerator magnets and cause orbit disturbance, beam loss and potentially premature beam dumps. Ground motion sensors were installed on the surface and close to the triplets, where the CE works were expected to have the largest impact on the beams. This paper discusses the observations made on the LHC beams that could be correlated to CE work.
